hen to book?

I reserve a limited number of sessions each month, so to secure your spot, please get in touch as soon as you decide you'd like to book. We can have a chat and discuss your vision for the session.

Typically, most bookings are made after the 20-week scan.

The age of your baby plays a crucial role in achieving the desired look and feel for your newborn images. Babies undergo rapid changes in their early days.

To capture those adorable curled-up poses showcased on my website, it's ideal to schedule your session within the first 7-14 days after birth. At this stage, most babies are still quite sleepy and have that delightful newborn curl we all adore!

During our session, your precious baby will be wrapped in a selection of soft, cozy blankets available in my studio. For those adorable photo moments, so all you need to do is to turn up, sit and relax!

Mums, I'm here to assist you too! If you're wondering what to wear, you can even choose from my exquisite range of dresses in the client wardrobe, which are designed to accommodate different sizes and styles, making you feel even more fabulous.

My newborn photography sessions take place in my welcoming natural light studio, nestled in the beautiful Illawarra area. It's a private space, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable experience for you and your little one.

I offer a wide range of packages and products, including albums and frames, for you to choose from. Each package comes with digital images, ensuring you receive the complete photography experience.

For a comprehensive price guide, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me via phone or email. I also offer affordable payment plans, and you can take advantage of Afterpay and Payright for added convenience.
